With the drought in California you wont find much greenery. But this is a beginners hike. Plenty of rest stops and the views will satisfy you. Who knows you might see some hollywood star along the way.

We visited Griffith Park for a picnic after going to the Observatory. Although the Observatory was quite packed, the park was not. We had our picnic on the lawn although there were tables available. It was a pleasent afternoon.

This is a nice park, but we could not find parking and later found that they were having a concert in the park that was beginning soon after we arrived. We were trying to give up to the Griffeth Observatory, but the traffic made it impossible and I believe we went as far as we could in the car before... More

This is a great vantage point to view the hollywood sign and also to see LA. You can get some good photos from here day and night. It is a short drive from Hollywood and a short walk from the parking lot.

Very busy when we arrived and couldn't get parked near the observatory so went for a picnic in the park, watched a film being made and also sat watching the many species of birds (lots of woodpeckers), squirrels etc. We drove back through the park and returned to the observatory. Managed to get parked on the road side and was... More

If you want to see the quintessential view of LA, go here at sunset [and be prepared to struggle to find a parking space] to watch the lights come on over LA. But be sure not to miss out on the Griffith Observatory - FREE, small enough not to be overwhelming, and entertaining for both kids and adults

Like many popular attractions in LA, parking can be a challenge here. That aside, though, this park features many trails and beautiful views of the city. We went during the day and enjoyed walking to Griffith Observatory. The skies were clear, but the there was a pleasantly cool breeze, so we didn't get too hot. Assuming you can get a... More

Couldn't rate this walk any more highly The view from the summit of Griffith Park is spectacular. As seen in the photos posted on here, you get to see a huge portion of LA city. The walk is about 1 mile and only requires average fitness. It isn't too steep.

I was in LA on business and promised my son a picture of the Hollywood sign. This turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip. I wasn't dressed appropriately to leave the main trail, but had a pleasant walk of about an hour and enjoyed the views. I didn't get as close to the sign as I... More
